Endangered Hoosier Landmarks Make Top-Ten List

5/6/2010

Indiana Landmarks announced its top-ten list of most-endangered Hoosier landmarks.

Bush Stadium in Indianapolis topped the list for yet another year.

Executive Vice President Tina Connor says the former home of the Indianapolis Indians is in grave danger if an alternative use and funding for restoration isn't found soon.

The list includes five repeat properties and five new properties.

New properties on the list include a Quaker meeting house and boarding house near Lafayette, the Plainfield Diner along US 40, and Gary's St. John's Hospital, built in 1929 as an all-black hospital.

Connor says the list helps bring attention to the properties and is used by Indiana Landmarks to focus on finding potential tenants or investors to fix and utilize the properties.

The most-endangered program began in 1991.
